Two Houston adult entertainment clubs this week agreed to settle a federal age discrimination case with a former waitress who alleged younger, male managers called her "old" and said she showed symptoms of memory loss.
The owners of Centerfolds and Cover Girls agreed to pay $60,000 to Mary Bassi. She was 56 when she was fired in 2006 "without provocation or explanation," according to a lawsuit the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission filed on Bassi's behalf.
At the time, she was working for Cover Girls, said Connie Wilhite, the senior EEOC trial attorney in the case.
Bassi previously had worked at Centerfolds, whose principal owners — Ali and Hassan Davari - also own Cover Girls.
